While there are tried, tested, and true aspects of project management, millennials are bringing fresh perspectives — leveraging technological advancements and placing additional focus in areas like economic, ecological, and social factors.

Alex Shootman, CEO at Workfront, a cloud-based enterprise work and project management solution provider, said learning to work with millennials is key since “digital natives now rule, and will increase in power and influence over the next several years.”

“Just like any immigrant and native in a society, there are differences, and those differences will change the workplace,” said Shootman. “Differences include that digital natives view the workplace as egalitarian vs. hierarchical, they prefer telecommuting and flexible hours and the opportunity to make up work remotely, (i.e., from a café on the weekend or while on vacation).”
